levees. i kept thinking, the category 5 levees we need are shelter and quality education and health care for everybody and infrastructure and transportation so that people can move on. is there any possibility of taking that and making it a broader conversation, environmental policy or housing policy that makes it easier to manage this? >> i think there is. i agree with neera that people like this post-partisan moment. they are tired of partisan politics and nothing getting done. we need it all. we need education and infrastructure. bloomberg endorsed obama citing global warming as the cause. twice in the last 14 months, new york city has had to evacuate. that has never happened before in the city's history. all these things are in play. this has changed the dynamic. there is a sense we need to move on this. i wish we could have bipartisan agreement on how to move forward. >> it is tough to have bipartisan agreement when republicans keep being climate change designers and anti-science in a variety of ways. >> anti-science, we are still dealing with 46 million people on food stamps. we ar
-centric for something in the future. to me, both of those reasons focus on this time of investing in education and development of future capabilities, tactics, techniques, and procedures. we have to invest in that going forward. >> could i do a short follow-up? what does that approach imply for the army civilians and contractors? do they become diminished? >> they might in terms of numbers, but it will still play a role. >> and how do you incorporate the planning of what those numbers need to be, particularly on the contractor side? >> you want to have the right balance. again, contractors provide us with its unique capabilities that we simply do not have. that is what they will focus on. we have department of army civilians that will provide continuity and consistency that we need. then you need our military members in order to provide us with experience, expertise, and frankly sometimes, just the validity of what we are trying to do based on their experiences. that is where and try to capture the right mix. right now, it is overbalanced toward contractors and civilians. i'm trying to rebalan
, , because i might not be able to take care of you," that is important to a senior citizen. on education, people need to really dig and find out what the educational programs are all about. it is more money and more money. it is all for the unions. if there were things going on in the school that the parents could see, instead of being pushed aside because the government wants to take over the children, and not let the parents have anything to say -- there are other subjects as well as the middle-class. host: will give you a chance to respond to some of her comments. guest: i think she is right. all the voters should have an opportunity to look behind the ads and build into the research on the individual candidates. they should come out knowing this country needs a change in direction, and who will create the number of jobs that are necessary. i think governor mitt romney has that program, if you look at it in depth. his commitment to produce 12 million jobs over the next four years, the way this country has to do. also, to take regulation out of the small business community, so that our
-elected he's going to say every good thing you can think of about education but in the final analysis heel do what his biggest supporters, the public sector unions insist upon and your kids will be in the same schools with the same results. when i'm president i'm going to be a voice of the children and the parents. there's no union for the p.t.a. [applause] i'm going to make sure parents have the information they need to know if their school is succeeding or failing and i want them to have the choice they can pick the school where their child can succeed. [applause] i've watched over these last few months as our campaign has gathered the strength of a movement, not only size of crowds like this, it's the depth of our shared conviction. our readiness for new possibilities. the sense that our work is soon to begin. it's made me strive more to be worthy of your support, to campaign as i would govern. to speak for the aspirations of all americans. i learned the best achievements are shared apreevementcheevements. i learned respect go along way and are returned in kind. that's how i'll conduct mys
has to appeal to the swing areas. more independent voters. and you had this educated, affluent group, the base around ohio state university. and that has been critical. in the end, if you show that map, ohio is broken up, we have said it for years into 5 ohios. those five areas, plus some of the border areas, we have about seven media markets. it makes a very expensive to campaign here. in gubernatorial races and some presidential races there will go to west virginia to reach the southern ohio parts. that is where the bigger market is and that has to be part of the mix, too. ohio is five ohios. host: we talked about the issues, the top issues in ohio in this election cycle -- can we talk about the issues? guest: this is like to been a shock to your viewers, but the auto issue has been huge here. i have never seen where one issue in the campaign can play so well here. obviously, it is the battle of the bailout. who wanted to take it into bankruptcy. who got hurt, who did not. you are seeing the new ones being played on. and you are seeing the big swing, which is on the president's sid
vote idea. here is a way of spending -- let's get rid of elections and get rid of having educated citizens who are educated every two and four years. wouldn't it be easier if we had no money in politics, no elections, no vote counting. >> wait a second. the point here is actually -- i know -- i'm saying if we are worried about the expensive campaigns, i think running the popular vote election is more expensive. >> we have to do more than reforms as well. it's why the people who are push thg are saying yes, we need money out and people in. we need a full democracy. it's one part of it. i don't think it's sufficient. >> how is making every vote count going to cause more money to be raised? >> hold that thought. you can think about this. you can't think about the way it will impact the policy positions the candidates take. i think that might be interesting. we'll be back with more after this. that can only come from having someone else pay your mortgage for an entire year... this is what you'll experience if you win the quicken loans skip-a-year mortgage sweepstakes. up to five winne
of the other things, education, a lot of things that are being battered around, people need to really dig and find out what the educational programs are all about. it is more money, more money, all for the unions. if there were better things going on in the schools that the parents could see instead of being pushed aside because the government wants to take over the children and not let the parents have anything to say. there are also other subjects for the middle class. host: i will give mr. bennett a chance to respond. guest: i think all voters should have an opportunity to look behind the ad than delving into the research on the individual candidates. if they would, i think they would come out knowing that this country needs a change in direction in this country needs somebody who's going to create the number of jobs necessary. i think it gov. mitt romney has that program. his commitment to produce 12 million jobs over the next four years is the way this country needs to do it. also, take regulation out of the small business communities so that our small businessmen, the real job creat
that building better school is going to change the education of our students. isn't it tougher standard and more competition. >> not one iota. it is a desperate act of the administration that ismenting to be perceived as doing 100,000 new teachers will not make investment rise . salary takers from the federal government can train jobs for the put future is laughable. best way to do that is are duce the burden. >> mark, is this another stimulus plan that is going to work the same way the last one did? >> i think the last one was ineffective because members of the congress decileded to block it and we spend little and we needed to spend two or three times the amount. it is 287 billion and we should have spent triple that and we have a 14.8 trillion. halfwent to loans and aid to bail out wall street. >> and so why are we going to spend money on jobs? >> we also have a 16.2 trillion debt. and of course, the last bit of spending did nothing to affect that. >> by the way, mark, five trillion in new spending from this president which is equivalent of germany and south korea. >> where are you getting th
for a greater federal role in education. he had a real plan there on prescription drugs. they developed a vision. so there was real substance there. mitt romney was far to the right in the primary. gave the conservative base everything they wanted. this is one of the most conservative republican platforms we have seen. he did nothing at the convention to move away from that. he waited until october 3rd to start in a debate to articulate moderate-sounding outcomes. not policy, but outcomes. things that sound pleasing to moderates, but he's not changed his position on anything that i can see. i'm struggling to see a precedent. the idea of you can't trust this guy. you don't want him being president. if it's going to work against a candidate, it would have to work now. >> have you seen that attack work? the idea that this guy is morally flimsy, useless. he will do whatever needs to be said and can't take him at his word. has that ever been stuck on a candidate in a way they can't slough off? >> it can be stuck on a candidate in the sense it raises their personal negative rating. that's far variety
schools shouldn't be 47th in anything. proposition 38 bypasses sacramento, and makes education a real priority- with the funding, to our local schools and the accountability from our local schools... that we'll need to improve student learning in every classroom. so we can stay 47th... or we can choose proposition 38. i'm voting yes on 38... because it makes our children #1. >>> i want to thank all the federal teand local teams in place. i'm confident that we're ready. but i think the public needs to prepare for the fact this is going to take a long time for us to clean up. the good news is we will clean up and we will get through this. >> what about the impact on the election, sir? >> i'm not worried that the point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families and i'm worried about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. right now, our number one priority is to to make sure that we are saving lives that are search and rescue teams will be in pla
governor here knows something about that. he's the national leader in education and he did some things i've copied in my plan for the nation. number one he makes sure schools are evaluated so you know how well a school is doing. they get graded. he makes sure the parents are able to send a child to a school of their choice. federalg to take dollars and instead of giving them to the schools i'm going to have them follow the student so parents can choose the school. number four doesn't sound to a lot of people like it has a lot to do with jobs but it does. it relates to debt and deficits which and that is if you're an entrepreneur thinking of risking your live ever life savings to start a business or build a factory, if you think america is on the road to greece or italy or spain, you're less likely to invest in america. and right now we spend a trillion more than we take in. it's bad for the economy. i think it's immoral for us to pass on debt like that to our kids and i will get america on track to a balanced budget. [applause] and number five, is to be a champion of small business, help
at -- >> you don't have to. you're not here to agree. you're here to elucidate, to educate. >> if you consider that how much money romney has tried to spend in the last couple of weeks trying to move the numbers in ohio and he hasn't. at this point they're trying to buy some cheap tv advertising to buy some time in pennsylvania, that's not going to happen. he may stand there and tell ohio, hey, i need you. it's not going to happen. he's already behind. and if you look at the battleground early vote states, he has to win 54% of the remaining votes in ohio to win the state. so those numbers, if you consider how many of the early vote people have already voted, in colorado, where you cited the ppp poll, he's got to win 55% of the remaining votes in colorado to win. that's where you start to see the wisdom of the obama team strategy, of a strong ground game and focusing on early votes and those sporadic voters and that the map for romney is getting tighter. >> ari, there is that decision is there another route. sometimes the democrats are doing it but here it is for romney. is there a route around
research shows... ... nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> coming up, john sununu plays the race card and claims that general colin powell's endorsement of president obama is based on his skin color. i'll have reaction from former chief of staff lawrence wilkerson and we'll talk with michael dyson about the role of race in the 2012 election. >>> and a rock star shares his story of living with a preexisting condition and why the affordable health care act is important to him and millions of americans. pearl jam guitarist mike mccready will join me later on the program. share your thoughts with us on facebook and twitter. using the #edshow, we are coming right back. hello? boo! i am the ghost of meals past. when you don't use new pam, this is what you get. residue? i prefer food-based phantasm, food-tasm. poultry-geist works too if you used chicken.

back now. here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! oh...there you go. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! i'm gonna stand up to her! no you're not. i know. you know ronny folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy are they jimmy? happier than a witch in a broom factory. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. >>> from sappedy's landfall to sandy's wicked aftermath, here are today's "top lines," now the political storm. >>

for the success of the education in massachusetts even though he was only governor for four years. >> clearly the economy is not stagna stagnant. there are a lot of different statistical data that suggests the economy is slowly but steadily recovering, and it's real interesting for mr. romney to sort of suggest he's not going to play social conservative politics when he's been playing social conservative politics all throughout his campaign. all of his sort of commentary about women's issues and reproductive rates. his commentary about race and class and education, all the things he's been talking about in terms of his campaign have been on the socially conservative sizde. it doesn't make sense he wouldn't appoint judges that are socially conservative and engage in politics that are socially conservative and play to the tea party base of the republican party. that doesn't make sense unless he's playing fast and furious with the truth. according to what he's done up to this point, martin, i'm not sure we can trust him on this idea that he's not going to engage in socially conservative politics
-working, creative, risk-taking, business-starting, education-seeking people. it's who we are. i have, throughout my life, seen some of the great qualities in the human spirit in the american people i've come to know. there's some stories i love to tell that describe something about the american heart. i was a leader in the boy scouts of america some years ago. and i was at a court of honor. a court of honor is where we give out eagle scout awards and other awards. i was at a table in the gymnasium next to the american flag. the person who was speaking at the microphone was the scout master from monument, colorado. and he said their scout troop wanted to have a special flag. they bought an american flag, gold tassels around it. they sent it off to be flown above the capitol. when it came home, they said, i wonder if it can go on the space shuttle. they contacted nasa. nasa agreed. he said, you can't imagine the pride of our boys, you know, watching from their classrooms, seeing the space shuttle "challenger" launch on the tv screen. then they saw it explode on the tv. he said he called nasa a couple
sure that they got the rent. this is a well educated woman with a high paying job and the landlord preferred a government worker for security. they are running out of money now. they don't get it. >> suitor for your is the president says this is not the case? >> if we don't understand the past, e will never fire out e future. look at the last four years. government regulation on top of government regulation. 75,000 new irs agents to manage health care. come on, it's gog to be more of the same. we can afford it. neil: i want to switch to this storm, and i want to talk to you about it. you are a pretty good leader and you know good leadership qualities. i always thin, ad i talked to my producers from staten island. there is a great disconnect between politicos. everything is fine, we are on top of it. fifteen minute rule, i want people to get back to people, assuming that when you get back, something is being done and you create a great appearance of things are getting done. and i'm talking to my buddy and hearing about his family and friends in staten island and i realized, at they
home business and this is something you can do no matter your age education or experience. you can literally earn money on your own computer. your own laptop from your own kitchen table 24/7. but you never know unless you check it out. if you're sick of living paycheck to paycheck, worried about job security or retirement, if your goal is to earn extra money from home, part-time or full time, incomeathome.com. they're adding my listeners in record numbers. even giving away $1,000 to somebody just for checking them out. that could be you. visit incomeathome.com. that's incomeathome.com. in the middle of the interview with congressman frank pallone about the situation in his home state of new jersey, i got a text from my sister in my home state of delaware -- >> okay. >> bill: northern delaware. i told you about the beach house in fenwick island where i know we were flooded family beach house. in northern delaware and delaware city where i grew up, my sister texting they've got water all the way up to the back
education. when all our workers are learning new skills, when we support research in medical breakthroughs and new technologies. we believe america is stronger when everybody can count on affordable health insurance and medicare, and social security. when our kids are protected from toxic dumping and pollution. when our consumers aren't being taken advantage of by credit card companies or mortgage lenders. we believe in a democracy where everybody's voice is heard, where you just can't buy and election. and we believe in politicians who understand that there are some things the american people can do better for themselves, for example, that politicians in washington, mostly men shouldn't be controlling healthcare choices that women can make perfectly well for themselves. [cheers and applause] >> for eight years we had a president who shared these beliefs, a guy named bill clinton. [cheers and applause] >> and so our beliefs were put to the test. his economic plan asked the wealtheist americans to pay a little bit more so we could continue to invest in our people, continue to invest in idea
bridges roads even the education. the school system suffering mightily. this could just be the beginning. illinois's direct debt is now 58 billion dollars. joining us now is john tillman from the illinois policy institute. a lot of people reacting to the illinois report. the report of the state budget crisis task force, a big-time report, and the thing is for me, it's all the reasons why this so, you know, there's so many problems. it's not just one thing. we're talking about the budget process, underfunded retirement benefits, medicare spending, law and practices hindering fiscal responsibility and stability. it goes on and on. it seems like you are on a collision course. >> it would be irresponsible of the people of illinois to ask the other 49 states to bail us out for the spending we have been doing for decades. this is a spending driven crisis. we have structural overspending that is unsustainable. the best way to illustrate this is in 2000 we had about 1.5 million people on medicaid. we now have 3.1 million people on medicaid. that's 104% growth. while we've expanded it to a middle
with president obama and his administration when it comes to issues of climate and immigration and education. i think we ought to keep on the track that we are on. >> the former secretary of state ruffled some republican feathers. the romney campaign deployed former governor john sununu to respond. that's when things got ugly. >> when you take a look at colin paul, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement mace basted on issues or whether he has a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud colin for standing with him. >> did you catch the first line from sununu? here it is. >> when you take a look at colin powell -- >> he said, when you take a look at colin powell. as if it's obvious why powell would endorse a black president because he's a black guy too, right? this is outrageous. this morning a radio host had an interview with the president and asked the president if he was offended by sununu's remarks. >> any suggestion that
more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> one week from tonight we may know who the next president will be. hurricane sandy has presented a unique challenge for the campaigns just one week from the the election. president obama cancelled campaign events in order to monitor recovery efforts. in an e-mail to supporters, his campaign manager asked for donations not for the the campaign, but for the american red cross stating soon enough we'll get back to work on the most campaign of our lifetime. but the most important thing at this moment is you and your loved ones are safe and the rest of us do what we can to speed the recovery. the romney campaign, on the other hand, found themselves struggling to find the right tone. in an effort to seem insensitive to the millions of americans affected by the storm, the romney camp cancelled appearances on monday and tuesday but rebranded others as storm relief events. senator john mccain spoke on behalf of governor romney and apparently missed the memo about putting polit
, not very educated, to do her civic duty and you have some guy standing over her shoulder saying, this is not right. this is not right, to try to intimidate the senior citizens who are trying to help people vote. you have to have democrats or progressives at the poll saying this is what is right and people exercise their constitutional right. >> now, when you talk about the ground game, mary kay, i want people to understand this is also in the midst of big money being used by the right ring. the koch brothers have launched a $3 million campaign in michigan and sheldon adelson is running an ad campaign in three states and karl rove and american cross roads and cross roads gps bought $17.7 million in ad space in just eight key swing states woult a ground game it's hard to go up against that. >> that's right. and it's chump change and it helps make crystal clear that the choice that president barack obama is putting in front of the country and why they are discouraged or confused and that's why building the relationship and the block cap pens and volunteers that are pulling the vote
problem and we have huge varieties between states and education levels and gender. >> let's talk about the psyc psychology of it. are people looking at the numbers and measures how they feel? whatever the case, they're measures how they feel at their home right now. >> absolutely. it's a good media story to talk about the number that changes month to month. oh, my god the unemployment rate is 7.9%. do i have a job that pays enough? do i have several part-time jobs? will i find one if i lose one? that's what matters at an individual level. >> we know how that factor into who the public will vote for on tuesday. who makes me feel more comfortable about my future. >> what's odd about this is you think those areas hurting the most would be most likely to blame washington and president obama. they're most likely to vote democratic. people who do not have jobs who are struggling and not earning sufficient income seem much more likely to gravitate toward a party with a safety net. people who have jobs and are doing well are more likely to be skeptical of government activity. >> thank you very
on the banks that crashed our economy. medicare, voucher. catastrophic cuts to education, millionaires who get one of the largest tax cuts ever, while middle-class families pay more. that's what mitt romney wants to bring more. remember that when you go here -- >> i'm barack obama and i approved this message. >> no more ads and no more debates. it's up to you. on the republican side, here's the closing argument being made by mitt romney in the crucial swing state of ohio -- who will do more for the auto industry, not barack obama. fact checkers confirm hills attacks on mitt romney are false. the truth? mitt romney has a plan to help the auto industry. he's supported by lee aiko can and gm. he sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >>> i'm mitt romney and i approved this message. >> mitt romney did actually say he'd let detroit go bankrupt and he opposed the bailout and said if we did it it you could kiss the automotive industry good-bye and that didn't really work out. when they endorsed him, they said in spite of him scr
